Green Song

This song is by Anne Sofie von Otter and Elvis Costello and appears on the album For the Stars (2001).

Fine rain was falling on the gravel and glades
The last rays of September bejewelled broken blades
But there's someone that I long for
Oh, where have you been?
As the red earth lies under a covering of green
Do you trip on the city's golden gutters and kerbs?
As the seasons grow wild and the ground undisturbed
Till you find what you are now
Is less than you've been
As the red earth lies under a covering of green

Is patience exhausted?
Are your pockets picked clean?
I was lost in the next world
Or somewhere in between
And it's much as predicted
They go down that same track
They say they'll return
But they never come back

Fine rain was falling on the gravel and glades
The lest rays of September bejewelled broken blades
Are you still restless'
Or are you serene?
As the red earth lies under just a covering of green
